Bay Near Gorgas Memorial Institute in Panama

Smithsonian Archives - History Div
Scientists are on the Biological Survey of the Panama Canal Zone. Smithsonian staff were in Panama with the Institute for Research in Tropical America, a group of private foundations and universities under the auspices of the National Research Council, who first established a research laboratory on Barro Colorado Island, Panama Canal Zone, now known as the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute, in order to investigate the flora and fauna of tropical America.

Albert S. Hitchcock was a botanist with the United States Agriculture Department's Bureau of Plant Industry and Honorary Curator of Grasses at the United States National Herbarium at the Smithsonian.

The negative number #1081a is Hitchcock's negative number. The original photograph is located in Hitchcock's travel album. For other views of the site for Gorgas Memorial Institute see Negs. SIA 2010-0705, SIA2010-0706, SIA2010-0707, SIA2010-0709, and SIA201-0714.

John Peabody Harrington papers: General and miscellaneous materials (Mexico/Central America/South America), circa 1907-circa 1957

National Anthropological Archives
Microfilm and digital surrogates of microfilm are available. See Volume 7, reel 36. Only original documents created by Harrington, his coworkers and field assistants, or field notes given to him by others were microfilmed.

Electronic inventory available. Consult with archivist. See also "The papers of John Peabody Harrington in the Smithsonian Institution, 1907-1957, Volume 7: A guide to the field notes: Native American history, language, and culture of Mexico/Central America/South America," edited by Elaine L. Mills (1988). http://anthropology.si.edu/naa/harrington/pdf/mf_guides/jp%20harrington%20guide%20-%20volume%207.pdf

This subseries of the Mexico/Central America/South America series consists of highly miscellaneous, unsorted notes which were found scattered throughout Harrington's papers. Most of the material deals with Mexico and Central America, although there are data relating to South America and possibly to his study of placenames and province names. The notes were recorded during various periods of time as evidenced by the different types of paper used; most are undated. There are references to Aztec, Tarahumara, Tarascan, Cochimi, Cora, Chontal, and Tojulabal. Castulo Ucan, an informant with whom Harrington worked in New York, is mentioned. Perhaps of greatest interest is a four-page list of Zapotec words, consisting of numbers and miscellaneous vocabulary, which was elicited from a Mr. Harvey in February 1923.
